Market Volatility Expected Ahead of President Trump's Speech

1 March, 2017

On Tuesday, February 28, at 9:00p.m. EST (4:00a.m. Wednesday, March 01, Server Time, GMT+2), President Trump will address a joint session of Congress for the first time since taking office.

In a speech that will be watched by millions of viewers in the United States and around the world, the President is expected to speak of his presidency and address pressing issues like his plans for health care, the tax system, the military, and his goals for his administration.

President Trump’s speech and his remarks are expected to cause much volatility in the financial markets. This may lead to wider spreads across numerous trading instruments, while any sharp market movements may trigger Stop-Outs. For this reason, we strongly advise you to monitor any open positions that you may have and ensure that you have enough margin in your trading account(s) to protect your positions.

Note, also, that margin requirements across several instruments are subject to change as a result of market volatility. For more information on our trading conditions and the latest margin requirements, please visit the FxPro Blog.
